as high pressure remains in control setting upt off giving wind due to the clock wise wind flow. so it's wet around the pacific north west but staying away from the bay area and no changes ahead once again going not only into the next week but possibly the week after that. so here we are with well above normal temperatures. and also not a drop of rain in this forecast. san francisco, though, we're going to see some more clouds and fog but clearing throughout the next several days. we'll be watching out for that hopefully soon and we'll get some rain scott and kris. >> let's hope. thank you. coming up, modernizing america's national parks and the controversial proposal to allow modern conveniences like amazon deliveries inside your park. >> well speaking of amazon, the company's prime free one-day delivery expanding to millions of new products.
